Car Bluetooth speaker fits inside your steering wheel

Posted in Bluetooth by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2009

Car Bluetooth speaker fits inside your steering wheelIf your car isn’t new enough to have Bluetooth integration, this Steering Wheel Bluetooth Adapter may be the perfect solution. It fits around the inner part of a steering wheel with some options for size adjustment. For $63 the adapter sports a microphone and speakers for speakerphone, an LCD display for incoming callers, SD port for MP3s, USB and FM-out so you can play everything back through your car’s stereo.

There is a catch however, the adapter’s power source is your car’s cigarette lighter. You would be connecting your steering wheel to the lighter. Which could be a safety hazard. Unless it’s rechargeable. In that case don’t charge it while driving.

SoundBulb is a light bulb and a speaker

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2009

SoundBulb is a light bulb and a speakerWireless speakers are great. They eliminate wires, which is always a plus. Who wants to look at wires? So what you’re left with are just the speakers. Well, thanks to this concept, the speakers will no longer be seen either. Why not build speakers right into your light bulbs? Two devices, become one.

The SoundBulb is a wireless speaker inside a functioning LED light bulb. No speakers, no wires. Just sound and light. It cuts it down to basics. Bluetooth gives them the ability to stream audio from most computers or cellphones. You could control the volume by twisting the bulb’s outer ring, while the on/off switch for the wireless receiver is on the side. The speakers get power directly from the socket.

Jewelbox iPod/iPhone speaker dock from Vestalife

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2009

Jewelbox iPod/iPhone speaker dock from VestalifeThe Jewelbox is the second new Ladybug-inspired product from Vestalife. The other is the Firefly. The only differences in this one are the shape and the absence of a built-in subwoofer. The red is a bit more subtle on this one.

No price info or word on availability yet, we will likely know more next week at MacWorld and CES. I’m liking this one over the Firefly. If there’s one thing that Vestalife knows, it’s Ladybug speaker docks.

Firefly iPod/iPhone speaker dock from VestalifeRemember the Ladybug, that cute award winning iPod dock from Vestalife? Today, the company is launching two new versions of the stylish bug dock. They already had a pretty unique and innovative design, so this year they are looking to improve on the shape.

It’s far more curvy, looking less techie and more organic. With the Firefly, you have a more naturally elegant iPod/iPhone dock. The Firefly is iPhone compatible, unlike the LadyBug, and has a built-in subwoofer. Features after the jump.

Yorozu Audio universal speaker kit

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 17th, 2008

Yorozu Audio universal speaker kitThe Yorozu Audio universal speaker kit asks, “Got milk?” And if you do, you too can have this speaker. In fact, you can turn just about anything lying around into a speaker. This device relies on a vibrating sonic transducer that takes audio from your portable media player or sound system, then sends it to an attached inanimate object.

It’s all about resonance, but don’t expect great audio. It will cost you $56.30 to impress all your milk drinking friends, but if you ask me it just looks like a fancy heart monitor for dairy products.

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2008

Jamo A 804 wall-mounted speakerJamo has announced the A 804 wall-mounted speaker. The A 804 will help you out by not having to buy separate home theater audio components when one model will do it all for you, with good performance in a slim speaker.

The A 804 sports a contemporary design that will match most flat panel TV’s. It can be mounted horizontally and vertically, so it works well as a center channel or a front left or right, even rear surround speaker. Under the hood, the A 804 shows off Danish audio design. The .75-inch silk-dome tweeter featuring Jamo’s proprietary WaveGuide technology makes for clean, clear highs, while the 4.5-inch midrange and two 4.5-inch woofers provide stirring midrange and deep bass.

Cuckoo clock speaker rocks you out of bed

Cuckoo clock speaker rocks you out of bedImagine waking up to this thing blaring out tunes. Designed by French artist Stephane Vigny, the loudspeaker clock pretty much does what you’d expect it to do. It just does it without a cuckoo bird.

When the appropriate time comes, the doors flip open, the bottom woofer extends out and music is played loudly as you are shocked awake and take a hammer to the thing. It will wake up even the deepest of sleepers. I’ve never had the pleasure of waking up to this monstrosity and already I want this concept dead.

Burns: “Gentlemen we can rebuild him. We can make him cuddlier in shades of white, blue and pink that should appeal to teen girls.”

Smithers: “Yes, these teen girls…Their parents have money. We’ll be giving them the exact same product. It’s just wearing a snuggly jacket”

Burns: “Damn if that’s not a perfect way of introducing ‘something new’ during this economic crisis. Get on it right away”

Smithers: “One thing sir. How should we handle the marketing?”

Burns: “Let the blogs take care of that.”

Smithers: “Brilliant as always sir.”

JVC’s Sound Garden concept is a modular speaker systemJVC’s Sound Garden concept blends tree-hugging with design. It’s a full hi-fi speaker system with bass-reflex ports and little pot areas for your plants. (Which don’t have that much room.) And it’s all made of some wonder material called “eco-plastic”. If you want, you can connect a whole bunch together for massive sound and massive plant life. Just a concept right now, but rest assured they are working on more music/plant tech as I type this.

I-MU Vibro Speaker turns surfaces into speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2008

I-MU Vibro Speaker turns surfaces into speakersThe I-MU Vibro Speaker claims to turn just about any hard, flat surface into external speakers for your iPod or compatible mp3 player. It does this with ‘patented super-energy crystals’. Wow. That’s a new one. The device will presumably give you a very loud desk. No comment on the shape and how this device could potentially be misused in other situations. If you’re a big believer in ‘patented super-energy crystals’, why not give it a go for £29.99.

Pea Speaker concept has Bluetooth balls

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2008

Pea Speaker concept has Bluetooth ballsYou don’t see concepts based on peas everyday. Designer Lu Le was inspired by the pea-pod for this wireless “dynamic audio environment” Pea Speaker system, which has seven Bluetooth-enabled speaker spheres, that can be spread around a room for a hopefully awesome stereo sound. The idea is not to have a more perfect surround sound system, but to more completely fill an area with sound. It certainly makes sense and is a great way to have music everywhere. Recharging of the spheres would be through induction when in the ‘pod’. This concept has a very good chance of hitting the market very soon.
